Student Volunteerism

Our complex society is filled with challenges, but these challenges offer opportunities for you to become actively engaged in the issues you care passionately about. The Office for Student Volunteerism educates students to be socially conscious, skilled, and committed to a just, diverse, and democratic community. The Office offers a wide range of community exchange initiatives, which provide students the opportunity to be civically engaged, explore the root causes of social issues, foster reciprocal relationships with community members, and gain cultural competence.

Through direct service, education and reflection, students will realize and understand the importance of civic responsibility, explore ways in which they can impact their local, national and global communities, and become active citizens.
